Power of the Sword by Wilbur Smith

In the harsh and beautiful land of South Africa, races clash in an unequal struggle for justice that divides a family and inflames a whole continent. Manfred De La Rey, hard and lean as a desert lion, allows a blind, raging anger to catapult him to a dangerous success. While Shasa Courtney, his brother, strives to give meaning to his country's uncertain future, he is trapped in the inevitable rush of history.

Loved reading this book. Besides wanting to travel there IMMEDIATELY, it made me understand a little more about the African continent, the impact of colonialism, the slave trade and other historically verifiable information about tribal histories. It's just great reading and I always learn something new.

I find Mr Smith's writing terribly descriptive, and I was looking forward to what became of lead characters after Burning Shore. Not disappointed, this story resolves some matters, but Smith is sneaky and he's set up multiple scenarios for the follow on books, and the reader never knows which direction he's going to take you, but you know there will be some surprises! Burning Shore and Power of the Sword are great stories. An adventure for guys and gals alike!
